Eleri Ward has risen to critical acclaim due to her indie-folk musical theater covers, but all the while she's been making pop music of her own. Having released her first EP, Prism, in May of 2020, and her second EP, Friction, earlier this year, there are no signs of Eleri letting up on her original music. Inspired by Caroline Polachek, Sufjan Stevens, Lianne La Havas, and Andrew Bird, Ward doesn't sound like any one of those influences, but rather has a way of combining genres and styles texturally beneath her unique, wide-range vocals. Rooted in storytelling and colored with catchy melodies and clever lyrics, many have described Eleri Ward as a love-child between Sara Bareilles, Maggie Rogers, and Dua Lipa. You can stream Eleri Ward's music on all platforms. @eleriward www.eleriward.com
